Research on the Mechanical Behavior of High Strength Concrete
Bases on experimental investigations of HSC and NSC, HSC’s mechanical behavior, failure mechanism, fracture toughness, characteristic length and damage feature are discussed in the paper, and the formula for flexural strength and comparative toughness is given. The results show that the HSC has a good uniformity of structural entity and large cracking resistance. In addition, HSC is more brittle and more vulnerable to damage than NSC.
